Homebuilt Bag Mount

Inspired by a very nice how-to thread with pics put up by ColoradoTom, I shamelessly plagiarized his ideas and rolled my own.

His post is here:


About the only things i did differently were using square tube stock on both sides, incorporating a cross bar to distribute the load from one side to the other, and relocating the turn signals on the fender. Here are my pics.


2008 B-King - Bone stock

2007 KLR650 - Moab shock - Progressive springs 10wt oil - Happy Trails fork brace - Steel front brake line - ProTaper Evo - Acerbis Rally Pro guards - Uni Filter - KLX needle - De-Snorkled - Slide drilled - FMF Q4 - DooHickey done - Swingarm pivots drilled/tapped for grease Zerks - Custom (homebuilt) mount and Pelican 1450's.

Dave -

That's cool, clean and simple.

Nicely done!

I still held his automatic more or less pointed at him, but he swung on me just the same. It caught me flush on the chin. It was meant to be a hard one, but a pansy has no iron in his bones, whatever he looks like. -Philip Marlowe
